1MORE Triple-Driver In-Ear Headphones (E1001) Quick Review by mark2410
Thanks to 1MORE for the review sample.
Brief: We have a new US$100 king.
Price : US$100 or £95
Specifications: Frequency Range: 20-40,000 Hz / Plug: 3.5 mm Gold Plated Color: Black With Brushed Gold
Accessories: 9 pairs of tips, 3 of which foam, a magnetic clasping case, an airplane adapter and a matching shirt clip.
Build Quality: Nice, they look very tidy and neatly constructed. The cable is something whatever with Kevlar in it so should be sturdy but it’s a bit stiff for me. Seems good though.
Isolation: Pretty good for a hybrid and thus with a dynamic. Easily fine for on a bus or out and about use. Even the odd Tube or flight should be fine. As always you will then need to use your eyes for noticing traffic, or get run over.
Comfort/Fit: They were perfectly comfy for me to wear up, for hours at a time. The fit was a bit shallow so I need the big foam tips but then was fine in use.
Aesthetic: They are kinda nice. Nothing that especially made me love them, nice but just nothing very special. Pleasant.
Sound: Excellent. In every acoustic aspect I was impressed by these. They are quite boosted in the bass so purists may not entirely happy with them but its quality is excellent. I loved its quantity too, sure it’s a bit overly boosted but for most that isn’t any sort of problem. The mids are also superb, a bit creamy which errs them towards intimacy but they have great detail levels are gloriously flowing over the ear. The treble too is excellent quality. For a BA they have a faintly rounded impact and a bit of a weightily warmed decay. Bright and airy stuff is little bitty oppressed, there is a darkened slant and a bit warmed but it perfectly pairs with my own tastes. Love it greatly. The bass is rich and rather deep, it hasn’t the mast amazing depth but for the money, its most impressive and capable. The mids too are sumptuous and flowing, there is such a creamy effortlessness to them they just flow round the ears with such ease. No matter what they do warm things a smidge but I love their rich tonality. The highs too are spot on to my tastes. They are a hair rounded in the initial impact and they have a slightly over quick decay but again, that price tag, seriously excellent stuff for their price.
Unless you must have Ety isolation and Ety paragon like neutrality then these are awesome little beasts. Just note that they respond well to power so please do yourself a favour and amp them nicely.
Value: The best audio US$100 can buy you right now that I know of.
Pro’s: Sound incredibly good. Astoundingly good value.
Con’s: A relatively flavoured, warmed sound with a dash of cream.
